. democrat steve mcmahon and republican john feehery. you first, feehery. you're laughing. jon stewart said it better than i have, that basically you're attacking a strawman, a guy who wants to take away everybody's guns, he wants to tax everybody to the hilt, a left wing bad guy. whereas obama comes in and most americans say point by point we're with him. how can both be true? >> well, listen, i think when the president talks about medicare, he says one thing and he does another. and i think at the end of the day if we're going to get any deal on medicare, he's actually got to not just make the proposals and then take them back. he's actually got to stick with them. and i think that what he has a habit of doing is talking out of both sides of his mouth about any of this entitlement reform. >> is he a left wing tyrannical socialist or not? yes or no? >> i think he governs from the left. i think he's a populist progressive who governs from the left, yes. i think that's right. >> is he tyrannical? is he a socialist? >> i don't think he's tyrannical, and i doubt he's a socialist. >> thank you.

the likes of pat toomey, charlie crist and david dewhart. susan page and strategist steve mcmahon, welcome all, happy monday. ramesh i'll start with you. we know a lot of established republicans say you have to fight back in the primaries and get involved. this strikes me as something that will make things more divisive inside the republican party before it gets better. is that what the party needs? >> if you look at the reaction to this "new york times" story you get the distinct impressions a lot of republicans dislike each other more than the democrats and i think that's a a problem but the other question i have is how would this even looking backwards, how would this have made a difference in those races? if todd aiken is the example that was a three-way race, a tight three-way race, how would this group have picked one of the two candidates that would put him over the time. >> that anyone other than sharron angle would beat harry reid. there's a bunch of seats. >> and why do people think that the expenditure of a bunch of money is going to cause conservative voters in indiana to decid

here tonight, democrat steve mcmahon and republican john feehery. john, let's talk about your party and the way it wants to position itself on the whole issue of what happened in newtown. i don't mean necessarily gun laws particularly but the issues of background checks, the issues of mental health records. is there a role for the republican party in gun safety? strategically speaking? >> obviously, you see that with tom coburn. he certainly believes that there is. and i do think that tom coburn is -- this could be a nixon goes to china moment for tom coburn and the nra and gun safety. >> where is john feehery? where were you? do you want something done on gun safety or not? >> i would like something done on gun safety. i would like something done -- i would like a more aggressive effort to get guns away from violent criminals. i'd like to get guns out -- make sure they don't get in the hands of crazy people. that's where i am. and i think that we do need to have a more aggressive background check, and i have been pretty public on that. >> how about the president? does he have to re
saved everybody, but the last two people shot would be alive. >> let's go to steve mcmahon. what role is he playing for the president by being such a shotgun willy here? he's talking about get yourself a shotgun. he said it twice. i'm going to teach my wife to use it. get up on the cal bonny in our leafy neighborhood, let off a couple shots. this is what he's saying, not just have a gun but let off a couple shots in the direction or somewhere around the guy you think is trying to get in your house. it's pretty weird -- this isn't liberal talk. this isn't big city we're against guns talk at all. >> well, it's not, and it's -- >> what is it? >> it's talk like this -- it's regular joe talking to joe six pack about common sense gun control laws, and he's doing it because it's the middle, if you will, the people who could go either way on this who respect the first amendment -- sorry, the second amendment, who are hunters who may own guns. it's the obama administration and joe biden through joe biden sending a message we get the importance of second amendment. we understand the value of ow
strategist and purple strategies co-founder, steve mcmahon. good morning, gentleman. >> good morning. >> by my count, this is the fourth time eric cantor has tried to kind of rebrand the republican party, sort of switch gears on messaging. he is expected to tout new education initiatives, ways to simplify the tax code, kush health care costs, immigration reform. ron fournier with the "national journal," jonathan, asked this question -- "with a democratic tide threatening to crush the dpop, is it enough to just tweak talking points?" what do you say to that question? >> i think there's a tendency among policy maker, politicians who are in the legislative chamber all day, to be using this policy. they talk about the fiscal cliff, about entitlement reform, about debalancing the budget. but it's devoid of any value to the average voter. so fournier may have a point there, but i think it's critical for republicans to be talking about the values behind these policies, that we're always promoting. fiscal responsibility, why are we doing that? because that's a path to prosperity. i think tha
't have saved everybody, but the last two people shot would be alive. >> let's go to steve mcmahon to try to find out what he's saying here. let's try to disentangle the strange role he's playing. he's talking about get yourself a shotgun. he said it twice. i'm going to teach my wife to use it. get out on our balcony in our leafy neighborhood. let off a couple of shots. this is what he's saying. let it off around the guy who's getting in your house. that's pretty weird for -- this isn't liberal talk. this isn't a big city "we're against guns" talk at all. >> no, it's not. >> what is it? >> it's regular joe talking to joe six-pack about commonsense gun control laws and he's doing it because it's the middle, if you will. the people who could go either wi on this who respect the first amendment -- sorry, second amendment who are hunters and may own guns themselves. it's the obama administration and joe biden saying we get the importance of second amendment, we understand the value of owning a gun, we understand what it can do for people who want to protect their families. but there are limit
's bring in steve mcmahon hand michael steele. michael, force the defense, is the republican party capable of garnering all kinds of fringe voters, people on the very hard right, without having right wing candidates as your nominees and losing elections? how do they do both? >> look, this whole idea of having another pac is just to me -- it's just too out there. all you have to do to get together, organize at the state parties, put the state parties in charge of the political process. when i was state chairman, when i was a county chairman, i had to instill the discipline at the state level to make sure we were grooming and developing the kind of candidates you want to run. you just can't leave it to an open process and then swing in with yet another pac that's going to divert money away from the state, concentrated here for consultants and vendors in washington and then complain afterwards as we saw in 2012 when you get your clock cleaned again, oh, gee, it's the candidates, it's the state party. there's got to be a concerted effort by the rnc to get off their behinds, get involved in the
. >> i am joined by democratic strategist and co-founder of purple strategies steve mcmahon and republican strategist chris wilson. good morning, guys. >> good morning. >> the president has a very tough political decision to make. he promised to do more to attack climate change in the state of the union and on the campaign trail and also promised to do more on jobs and transcanada that has the pipeline claims it would create 20,000 new jobs while some of the president's biggest supporters support the plan, so you got them on one side, steve, the environmentalists on the other side. what's he do? >> i think what first thing he should do is make a decision quickly because this is -- there is pressure building in the environmental community for the president not to do this, and i think there is also pressure on the other side from the unions which are another important constituency of the president to do this and so this is a decision going to make someone unhappy so no reason to drag it out. he ought to make the decision. >> bill mckibben, the founder of says approving
